after your car warranty expires car care

Oh No! My car warranty expired! Now, what will happen if it breaks down? If this is a subject on your mind, here are the 5 most common services that will help add years more dependable service to any car, pickup, SUV, or van. Collected from years of providing car care service and products, and seeing the results.
What the heck is a timing belt? My advice. Replace your motors timing belt about when the car has reach 75,000 miles. Cost: under $250. A motors timing belt turns the motors cam shaft, which make the valves open and close, to let fuel in and exhaust out. After so many millions of flexing actions, the belts internal steel strands weaken. If the belt breaks, on some motors, the valves will stay open - instead of closing, causing the piston to smack into the valve with a sledge hammer hit - a damage that can cost over $2000 to repair. Not all motors need this service, but its wise on your part to check your car manual, or have a mechanic look to see if your motor has timing belt, or not. And of course, replace it every 4-5 years or 75,000 miles.
Change your other four fluids if your car is near 100,000 miles. My advice. They are radiator, power steering, transmission, and brake fluids. Cost: about $75 for each service. Why? Because several unseen conditions; electrolysis, acid attack, and fluid breakdown, are all reaching a dangerous point, and present in the fluids - they are the common causes of: Your cars radiator coolant leak and funny smell, when the a/c or heater is on - and that scum on the inside of your windows that won’t clean off. That is a heater core leak problem. [Replacement cost: up to $550]. New radiator service products, strong enough to end such leaks - but, have no fibers or particles, may solve the problem. These new stop leaks work effectively; even stopping intake-manifold coolant leak problems - a $1500 repair, otherwise.
The new breed of radiator servicing and problem solving products can also improve cooling characteristics, and stop electrolysis - one negative that eats holes in the radiator, erodes and causes manifold gasket and seal leaks. Coolant fluid breakdown - a condition where the protective additives in the coolant are used up, occurs in about two years - the time period before your next service and coolant replacement. Ignoring this service can have you and your family on the side of the road looking a your well-cooked engine - if ignored. A good treatment will claim to clean and neutralize acids, offer ingredients for better cooling efficiency, provide long-lasting stop leak protection. Protect gaskets and seals and rubber hoses.
